listen . . .
I wanted to share with WWdN readers this amazing thing I discovered via boingboing recently: Comfort Stand Records.
I'm listening to Swingin' Singles while I do this work . . . and I absolutely must share this record with you WWdN readers. It rules. Stand out artists include Math and Physics Club, Forty-One, Messer Chups (particularly Orgia of dead 2), and Kim & Buran — and that's just the first side of the collection. I haven't even gotten to side b yet.
But here's the greatest thing in the world about these artists and this label: every track and album is released under a Creative Commons license, so you can download, burn, and share the music with anyone you want legally. Comfort Stand sez: "Comfort Stand Recordings is a community-driven label where all releases are free with artwork and liner notes. We strive to bring you recordings that we find interesting, compelling and downright enjoyable. We are not genre-specific and feature a wide range of material, from well-known performers to those loud unknown kids down your block.
We are not a business. We're not out to make a profit. There are no banners, popups, or spam at Comfort Stand. You don't have to register yourself to download the music you like. We operate under the ideology that money need not come between artists and audience."
There's a lot of lousy free music on the internets. It's nice to listen to some really good free music for a change.
Enjoy . . .
